We have all been using it for about a year now, barely using shampoo in the last 12 months. and we are always pleased with the progressive results. The one thing we all agreed on is that we love the super clean feeling and are always pleased with our soft defined, frizz free curls, even wash and gos!
This is a fantastic product for getting rid of product build up on the hair and scalp. Even if we only use natural products and oils, and even consciously chose the products we use to prevent that from happening, over time build up will occur. We all know what that is like when our tresses remain dull and lifeless no matter what we do. Time to reach for the Bentonite Clay!
This is amazing!! The clay has the ability to bind itself to oils, build up, dirt and toxins that can attach to our hair and scalp, and draw them out.
Our favourite clay mix consists of bentonite clay, ACV (apple cider vinegar), Rose water, honey and a little EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) Then we apply to hair and wrap with cling film and leave a minmum of 30 mins.
After thoroughly rinsing hair with water alone (no shampoo!), we apply coconut oil to each section with the tiniest amount of conditioner to detangle. Lastly we finish with an ACV rinse. Can you say soft, defined, bouncy light curls!! Amazing stuff, works well with the daily moisturising spritz to hydrate and combat any dryness. Coconut oil is also your friend if you find clays a little drying on your hair. Ensuring that you finish with the ACV rinse and adding extra honey into your clay mix will help to add extra moisture to your hair.
Bentonite Clay has been used for hundreds of years by indigenous peoples for the nutritive and curative qualities the clay has. It nourishes and conditions the hair and scalp. Its absolutely wonderful for your skin too! Try smoothing a little on your face for 20 minutes while giving your hair a treatment. You will be amazed at how soft and clean your face feels. You can actually feel the clay drawing out impurities as it dries. Alternatively you can add 5-6 tablespoons to your bath for a relaxing detox mineral bath.
If you have found Rhassoul clay too drying for your hair, Bentonite Clay is a great alternative.
